This is based on this post in the Galaxy Gear General forum:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...50&postcount=2

I have a Sprint Galaxy S3, rooted stock MK3 with the hotspot mod flashed.

TS is running EnSec Patch & Imperium Operative Installer 20140221, option 2.

This is all from memory, but should be mostly accurate.

1) Enabled Xposed module and restart TS.
2) Installed HackConnectivityService.apk (found in referenced message). Enabled and TS restarted.
3) On phone, installed FoxFi (Sprint/AT&T only)
4) On TS, installed PdaNet(Tablet)
5) On phone, start FoxFi and run through configuation. Don't remember what I did here, but I don't think it was anything unusual.
6) On TS, go to Hack ConnectivityService app. Make sure the hack is activated and choose WiFi. Mobile may also work but I haven't played with that option too much.
7) Start PdaNet(Tablet). Choose configure. Start scanning.
8) Back on phone, Activate Bluetooth Mode. It ask if you want to be visible for 120 seconds. Choose Yes.
9) Back on TS, you should be able to pair with the phone's FoxFi. Click on bottom grey button. It may say Connect, but I can't tell because the screen is too small!
10) You should get a connected screen.

That's the general idea.

Without the Hack Connectivity Service in place, I could only browse the web. By choosing "WiFi" in enables Play Store access and GMail syncing, etc.

Other than the usual TS being unable to maintain a stable BT connection for any period of time, I have only found one other problem. GMail won't automatically sync for me over this connection. I can open GMail and manually check for new and it works fine. Maybe a Tasker script would help.

Thanks. Going to look into this and see if it can't be baked into a patch without the $8 FoxFi part.

I had an old PDANet license and yup, sure enough this method works. Though it disconnects pretty quickly. Maybe I can figure a tasker script to re-enable it...

the PDAnet app is too big for the screen and the connect button doesn't show for me.

Any ideas for fixes?

Unless you constantly push data (even then that sometimes fails) it drops. Same for the 5 or 6 other host/client apps I've tried so far.

Maybe have the Omaster and Ocompanion running at the same time?

Thumbs up Using EasyTether BT Tethering Works on TS
I followed the post that you linked http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...50&postcount=2 and I was able to get internet access using bluetooth on the TS from my SIII on T-Mobile network. I installed the EasyTether Tablet and the HackConnectivity module on the TS and EasyTether Lite on my phone.

Does it work for any length of time, or does it drop and not reconnect like the PDANet/Foxfi one?
